Michigan State's Mark Dantonio is the second-highest paid college football coach in the country with total compensation in 2014 of $5,636,145, according to USA Today.

USA Today on Wednesday released its annual list of football coaches' total compensation.

No. 1 is, not surprisingly, Alabama's Nick Saban, at $7,160,187.

Dantonio makes $5,611,845 in salary with another $24,300 in supplemental earnings, according to the report.

Michigan's Brady Hoke ranks No. 30 with total compensation of $2,856,000.

Dantonio's MSU contract was revised and extended in February, and he is signed on through the 2019 season. When MSU announced the new deal, it said Dantonio's total compensation package would be $3.64 million.

However, USA Today reported a $2 million stay bonus to Dantonio that had a vesting date of Jan. 15, 2014, taking his total compensation to $5.64 million.
